Cosentino, a global leader in innovative surfaces celebrated the grand opening of its Cosentino Center Malaysia – the largest Cosentino showroom in Asia. The festive event was attended by senior members of Cosentino from the global and regional offices, local architects, interior designers, business partners, and media. At 46,607 square feet, the experiential facility marks the Spanish company’s commitment to bring innovative and inspiring surfaces to the Malaysian market featuring its renowned brands including Silestone®, Dekton® and Sensa®.
The Center deviates from the traditional perception of a typical showroom. Over 3,000 slabs are on display in an art gallery format to showcase the variety of surfaces to inspire architects, planners, interior designers and consumers. Networking areas, a fully functioning show kitchen and a bar counter spanning over 5 floors are some of the interactive spaces offered.
“We have been looking forward to this moment to be truly present in Malaysia. Cosentino has been in Malaysia since 2014 and finally we have a space to fully engage with our friends in the architect and interior design industry as well as end users. Our vision is to imagine and anticipate design solutions that offer value and inspiration to people’s lives. We currently distribute our products in more than 110 countries, and we will continue to expand,” said Eduardo Cosentino, Vice President of Cosentino Group and the CEO of Cosentino North America.
The launch of Cosentino Center Malaysia marks the transformation of surfaces in Malaysia, be it in homes, offices, restaurants or public spaces. Cosentino carries wide range of quartz, granite, natural stone, marble, limestone, travertine and other different surfaces through its three brands – Silestone®, Dekton® and Sensa®.
Mark Collar, General Manager of Cosentino Malaysia stated that, “We believe that there is great potential in the Malaysian market for Cosentino. There is increasing appreciation for quality surfaces in Malaysia due to its functionality and its capability to transform the aesthetics of a space. Guided by the philosophy of constant improvement, Cosentino Malaysia strives to bring top-notch products that create limitless inspiration to homeowners, designers and architects. We are also ecstatic to bring Malaysians together with our experiential showroom. We will be holding frequent cooking events, wine tastings, networking sessions and specialised events for interior designers, architects, as well as the public.”
Adding to the celebration of their welcome to Malaysia, the Cosentino Group was recently selected as one of the ‘50 Best Companies to Work For’ by the Spanish edition of Forbes magazine. The study was based on the opinions of more than 8,000 employees of the biggest companies of all industries in Spain, where a stringent and transparent evaluation process took place.
The launch also witnessed the introduction of the Dekton® Stonika Collection that provides users with high shock and impact resistance without compromising aesthetics, the introduction of two dark, matte shades – Bromo and Milar of Dekton® by Cosentino and the launch of Sensa® by Cosentino, a protected natural stone with exclusive protection against stain.
